The Department of Physics at the University of California, Davis invites applications for a full-time tenure-track faculty position in astrophysics. Fields of interest span a wide spectrum of astrophysical topics (from planetary sciences to cosmology) and approaches (theory, observation, simulations). This position represents the launch of a major initiative in astrophysics at UC Davis with the intent to broaden the focus of the current cosmology group, and offers an opportunity to become part of an exciting program in astrophysics and cosmology, with connections to planetary science. Multiple positions are anticipated over the next few years. The faculty at UC Davis has access to the telescopes at the Keck and Lick Observatories, and the University of California is a founding partner in the Thirty Meter Telescope.
